Clouds and some very light snow showers are possible into the early overnight, but I think we'll see a bit of clearing by morning. It will turn very cold and lows will range from -5 to 2. If clearing develops faster, the currently forecast temperatures may need to be lowered.
There could be a few leftover flurries early in the morning, but most of the day should be snow-free. An area of high pressure will build into the northeast through the day Friday and bring us clouds and sun. Highs will be in the mid to upper teens and lows will be around 5 to 15 below zero; possibly lower in the normally colder locations. Lows near Binghamton should be around -9.
Under the high pressure, Saturday should be a quiet day with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Highs should be in the upper teens to low 20s. Saturday night should be cold, but clouds will increase into Sunday morning and temperatures will stabilize as the clouds arrive. I think lows will be around 0.
A storm will move into the northeast later in the day Sunday. The chance of snow is around 70%, especially by later in the day. There could be some ‘shovelable, or plowable’ accumulations of snow so please monitor the forecast. Monday should bring a few leftover snow showers and Tuesday looks quiet. Highs should be around 31 both days with lows in the teens.
An early peek at the late Tuesday and Wednesday time frame shows a storm moving into the northeast. If this does happen, it could be a wintry mess with rain, snow, freezing rain and possibly sleet before changing to rain then back to snow again as the storm moves away. It is obviously way too early to be certain with timing and exact details but this should also be monitored as it will be a few days before the Binghamton St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the chance is there of possibly significant accumulating snow in some areas.
